I believe Modern Perl should have a core module that can easily parse these simple Unicode CSV records. It should handle them in any character encoding scheme of Unicode:  UTF-8, UTF-16, or UTF-32. And it should handle the Unicode byte order mark seamlessly.

Why not?

I recognize that the current XS core module for parsing CSV records, Text::CSV_XS (marvelously maintained by Tux), may not be the right module to use as the basis for a new, fully Unicode-capable module. But because Perl's native Unicode capabilities exceed those of most other programming languages, Perl should have a proper FSM-based Unicode CSV parser, even if it's pure Perl and not XS.

I long ago accepted that Unicode conformance and comparative slowness go hand in hand 👫. So what? Look what you're trading a few seconds here and there for:  the technological foundation of World Peace ☮ and Universal Love 💕.

UPDATE:  Removed references to core module. I don't care about that. I just want a Unicode-capable Perl CSV module.
